    Korpivaara scores when it counts; ND loses third in row

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Heta Korpivaara scored 13 of her 18 points in the second half, including six points during a decisive 17-6 run, to lead Seton Hall to a 74-61 upset of No. 12 Notre Dame on Saturday.

    The loss was the third straight for the Irish (9-4, 0-2), their longest losing streak in eight years. The victory was the first for Seton Hall (5-8, 0-2) against a ranked team since beating No. 23 Notre Dame 51-48 in South Orange, N.J., on Feb. 8, 2004.

    Korpivaara made a pair of free throws with 11:20 left to give the Pirates a 45-44 lead, then added another pair of free throws and a 17-foot jumper to make it 51-46. The Pirates extended the lead to 58-50 when Shantel Brown made a 3-pointer and led by 10 when Monique Blake scored off her own miss.

    The Pirates, who outrebounded the Irish 32-14 in the second half, made 12 of 14 free throws during the final 1:50 to hold on for the victory.

    Jadis Rhodin had 13 points and six rebounds for Seton Hall and Amber Harris and Brown had 12 points each. Harris also added 11 rebounds and the Pirates had 14 second-chance points compared to just five for the Irish.

    Tulyah Gaines led Notre Dame with 12 points, Crystal Erwin had 11 points, despite going 1-for-7 from the free throw line, and Charel Allen added 10 points.

    It was Notre Dame's second straight loss against an unranked team. The Irish lost 66-63 at St. John's on Wednesday. They also lost to top-ranked Tennessee 62-51 on Dec. 31.
